    Young won’t be a FA for long, he had a good spring and would have made many other clubs. The Nats just had better options available.

      Thought we would be able to trade Young. Not that we have any leverage though.

      Did he end up breaking .200? He’s done.

            Yeah, Carroll is probably done, but WhoKilled was referring to Chris Young.

    Im surprised the Nat’s would release Young. He’d be good depth in the minors

    • ugnolabar 1 year ago

      he had an opt-out clause if not on the major league roster, I believe

    • Jeffy25 1 year ago

      Might have requested it

    Wish we could have been able to keep Chris Young as depth but oh well.
